Montgomery Man Sentenced To Prison For Selling Weapons On Dark Net

Michael Albert Focia (48) of Montgomery, Alabama was sentenced for 51 months of jail time for dealing with firearms without a license and two counts of selling guns to customers who were outside the State of Alabama, according to George L. Beck, Jr., United States Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama.

We have already written an article about Focia. We have detailed in that content how Focia was caught by federal agents due to his actions.

According to court documents, the prosecution came up with evidence that proves Focia was selling guns on the dark web. During the investigation, federal agents have uncovered that the dark net weapon dealer has shipped 32 firearms to many different locations, including Australia and Sweden. According to the feds, Focia has used different stealth tactics to hide his identity when sending the packages, this included placing false return address labels on packages, using aliases for sending, falsely declaring the contents of the parcels he was sending, and packing the firearms so that they appeared to be computer hard drives if inspected. U.S. Attorney Beck made this statement regarding Focia’s case:

“Modern criminals often think that the secrecy provided by the internet gives them freedom to violate the law. This case proves them wrong and proves that even the most technologically savvy criminal, such as Focia, will be detected, prosecuted, and forced to spend time in prison when he or she uses modern technology to engage in old-fashioned crime.”

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the United States Postal Inspection Service, with the help of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Elmore County Sheriff’s Office, and the United States Marshals Service. The prosecution of Focia’s case was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan S. Ross.

  1. Not to endorse any specific markets but I’m glad to see Nucleus cease the sale of weapons – even if the main reason is to protect their own asses.

    I think major markets should go drugs only. Let the weapons dealers and carders have their own sites that are more likely to bring harm to others. I’m sure somebody will rebuke with utterances of self defense and how carding only hurts the banks. To you I say Bullshit sir.

    FUCK off, you lying pig-fuckers!
    my under-standing of it is that this Focia dead-shite got caught the old-fashioned way….he got sloppy….and USPS got suss…..the pigs followed up and, with a minimum of investigation(s), found his fckn trash-can over-flowing with gun boxes…

    the fact that he had been shipping guns for quite some time proves that they didn’t get ‘on’ to him through the DW!

    if you take the appropriate precautions….TAILS/USB-virtual box, PGP communications, a good VPN &c….these fuckers can’t catch you….EVER!

    they’re just trying to ‘spook’ people with their imbecilic fckn BS….

    *bottom line*
    these NWO control freak MAGGOTs don’t want people to be armed….that’s why they keep pulling all these BS hoaxes like Sandy Hook and the l8st pile of stoopid, fckn crap…San Bernadino!
